Default Slow OpenGL on 7.3

I installed the Nvidia 2960 drivers for my TNT 1. I read the readme.txt and all the libraries seem to be correctly installed. I can run KDE fine and there is an Nvidia splash screen when I start it now. Unfortunately, my OpenGL screensavers don't work at all and when I run Quake 3, it runs at about 1 frame every 5 seconds. What could be wrong? How do I check to see that q3demo is using the right GL drivers? (when i use "ldd" on q3demo, it says it's not a dynamic executable). Here is a paste of what q3demo says when it is starting up:

----- R_Init -----
...loading libGL.so: Initializing OpenGL display
...setting mode 3: 640 480
Using XFree86-VidModeExtension Version 2.1
XF86DGA Mouse (Version 2.0) initialized

Initializing OpenGL extensions
...GL_S3_s3tc not found
...ignoring GL_EXT_texture_env_add
...using GL_ARB_multitexture

I fixed the problem... at least for Quake 3. Basically I had to edit /etc/X11/X11Config to include lower resolutions like 640x480, 800x600, etc. The problem was that since these video modes weren't listed in the X11 config file, Quake 3 used the Mesa OpenGL (software) instead of the Nvidia OpenGL. Now it's running smoothly. I haven't tried other opengl application yet.
